Overview

About the property

One bedroom, Oceanfront Condo w/Panoramic view - Centrally Located On Kauai.

Kauai is a paradise filled with tropical colors, smells, and foods, combined with a temperate climate that enfolds you, invigorates you, and refreshes your senses as you wake each morning to an astounding variety of things to see, do, taste, and experience! Imagine yourself a part of this tropical fantasy world.

Welcome to Wailua Bay View, #208!

This condo is the realization of our dream to own property on the beautiful island of Kauai, and to be able to share this with others who share a desire for living life simply, and in an idyllic environment!

Our unit is located on the 2nd floor, and in the center of the complex, with an astounding beach & ocean view. This is not simply a hotel room, it is a apartment-sized condo, equipped with a king-sized bed, (a queen-sized inflatable bed is also available), cable television, WiFi router, a washer/dryer, and bedroom A/C.

There is no daily maid service, however, the unit furnished with everything needed to make your stay carefree and enjoyable; a comfortable and completely outfitted condo. The condo is non-smoking, and no pets are allowed in the unit.

The pool has been remodeled with a beautiful tile mosaic bottom (turtles!), all new furniture, and two poolside gas barbecues. There is plenty of free parking in a well-lit parking lot.

We purchased this property in 2013 and refurbished the unit from top to bottom, adding new flat screen TVs, flooring, draperies, new lanai furniture, linens, kitchen amenities, cooler, pool toys, beach shelter, and more! Every room is carefully cleaned and refreshed after each guest, and we continually make improvements as we visit this paradise every year from the mainland.

During our November 2016 visit we thoroughly cleaned and "spruced up" the condo with some touch up painting. We also re-faced the kitchen and bathroom cabinets, which really brightened up both rooms! Linens are replaced yearly and all amenities are serviced each time we visit. We love this little condo, and hope that it shows!

The dining table & chairs are very comfortable for those (few) times you want to eat inside, (we prefer the lanai). The Visio sound bar is a "must have", because of the nearness to the ocean. It dramatically improves the sound quality of the flat screen TV in the living room, and provides a great way to listen to your favorite tunes via bluetooth. Instructions for doing this are included in our Guest Guide Book.

Road noise is no problem in this unit, due to the double-paned SOUNDPROOF inner window we installed in the bedroom. It slides opens for breezes, or closes tightly for a quiet night's sleep. The only sounds you'll hear are the ocean waves from the lanai!

The FABULOUS view and closeness to the ocean, as well as the lovely grounds and intimate feel of Wailua Bay View, combine to make this property a haven for visitors to Kauai - especially after a long day of exploring all the island has to offer!

Beautiful Kauai awaits you. Give us a try - you will be glad you did!

About David and Rita Ferguson

We live in western Washington state, (another beautiful spot), and in all of our travels, there is no more beautiful place to relax and unwind, than Kauai. This beautiful property is the realization of our lifelong dream to own a piece of paradise and, with our family now raised, we spend as much time here as possible.

We are 'hands-on' owners, dedicated to maintaining and improving this beautiful property, during our visits each year.

David and Rita Ferguson purchased this condo in 2013

Why David and Rita Ferguson chose Coconut Coast

What an incomparably lush and verdant tropical island! Kauai is the perfect vacation spot. . . especially at Wailua Bay View. The setting is intimate (only 45 units), and views of the ocean and "Sleeping Giant" cannot be beat! We love this place, and we want to share it with you!

Our central location on the island is perfect for travel destinations North or South, or simply exploring many attractions the East side has to offer. This facility is literally feet away from the beach, with an unobstructed view of the ocean and mountains to the south from our lanai.

Many shops and restaurants are easily within walking distance, including a farmers market (for local produce), and local entertainment (hula & music performances).

The location cannot be beat -- midway between the North (Hanalei) and South (Polihale) shores of Kauai makes our location the perfect stepping-off point for tourist attractions ranging from hiking, to romantic dinner cruises along the Napali Coast.

This is a oceanfront Kauai condo with a gorgeous panoramic view - paradise found, on a budget! Few properties on Kauai provide the unobstructed, and private ocean view that Wailua Bay View Apartments provide. Within the Wailua Bay View community there are very few units that can claim a full and panoramic view of the ocean, and unit #208 is one of those.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is well-stocked with all the items needed to ensure a comfortable, rejuvenating stay. The furnishings are clean, simple, and lovely; (and did we mention the view?). The ocean view is incomparable and speaks for itself.

Restaurants, shops, and services are within walking distance; this is an excellent location from which to embark upon your adventures anywhere on the island!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beachfront property, yet so private! Watch the gorgeous sunrise while sipping a hot cup, and enjoying one of many delectable pastries available from the Passion Bakery just across the street!

Strategically located midway on the island, and on the 'ke ala hele makable' (walking & bicycle) trail along the Kauai East coast makes this property walking distance to lifeguarded beaches, shopping centers, restaurants, pharmacy, water features, hiking, and a short drive to all of the wonderful adventures Kauai has to offer.

Many of the attractions tourists enjoy visiting are on the North and South/West shores of Kauai, while all of the conveniences required make each evening a delight are located near this East side oasis. This is the ideal location to rest between adventures and to start each exciting day from! It's also a perfect spot to 'come home' to after a fun-filled day and simply unwind with a favorite drink on the lanai, or next to the pool.

The coconut market place is a short walk away with shops, restaurants, bars and free hula dancing shows. Breakfast at the Hula Girl on wonderful omelets and specialty pancakes. A farmer's market is available in the parking lot as well, selling local produce, (check for dates and times).

While a car is recommended to see all of the sights on the island, it's easy to spend your entire visit without taking the car out of the parking lot. It's easy taking advantage of all the local offerings, including the sandy beach out front, snorkeling at Lydgate Park, or enjoying paddling adventures on the Wailua River. The Wailua River Park is located nearby, offering a great starting point for hiking, kayak and guided boat tours of the famous fern grotto and hidden falls. Smith's tropical paradise luau is also located here, and offers, in our opinion the most authentic Hawaiian luau experience!

Kauai Paradise! Romantic views!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, very comfortable condo with absolutely gorgeous views of Wailua Bay, the beach and the mountains just as the owners indicate and their photos show. This stay was everything my husband and I could have hoped for and more while celebrating our anniversary in Kauai.

The welcome coffee and nuts were so thoughtful and so was the nicely made guide book the owner's created with so many helpful tips of what to see and do in Kauai. We appreciated all the amenities and tropical furnishings the Ferguson's provided. The a/c unit in the bedroom was a blessing on several warm nights but the trade winds kept things nice and breezy most of our time there. The property grounds are very pretty and tropical. We saw the caretaker as we were leaving and my husband complimented him on how well maintained the property and landscape was.

Friends told us about shopping at Safeway and Costco (comparible prices as home) and we did that. We enjoyed easy to prepare breakfasts and dinners daily out on the lanai and packed our lunch daily for our outings. It was recommended to us to try every fruit from the local growers while at the farmers markets all over the island. We were sure glad we did this and enjoyed everything we tried.

No bad days! Each day was a beautiful day and a new adventure for us and I'm pretty sure we saw hundreds of waterfalls and nearly saw every part of the island in a convertible in 8 days. We had hoped to take a sunset boat tour of the Napli Coast but all the highly recommended tours were sold out. Next time!

A few of our favorite things: Walking the beach below the condo, Waimea Canyon, Wailua Riverboat trip to the Fern Grotto, Kalalau Lookout and Pu'u o Kila Lookout to see the Na Pali Cliffs, beach day at Hanalei Bay and the lookout, Tunnel Tree drive, Spouting Horn and there was so much more we loved.

Our most favorite trip highlights: we took a Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour of the entire island and we loved it and highly recommend this, AND we had an incredibly romantic anniversary dinner at Tidepools-Grand Hyatt. The food and service was outstanding!

Kauai truely is paradise and we had awesome time! We highly rcommend this condo and the location. Mahalo for your wonderful hospitality!!

Great bay view!

  • 4 of 5

Spacious, clean, and wonderful view. Kitchen well equipped for cooking. Bright, well lit rooms. Washer/dryer in the unit was very convenient. During hot days the family room was quite warm, with fan running, sliding doors and louvres opened. Used the AC and fan in the bedroom while sleeping. Hot exhaust from the AC unit came back into the condo via the door sill.

After a bit of rain, weather cooled down couple of degrees and the rooms became considerably cooler and more comfortable.

Excellent communication and directions throughout the renting process.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review! We are happy you found our condo comfortable, well lit, and such great location so central to island attractions! We understand it was very warm weather, and appreciate the tradewinds were not helping much during your stay. We have since visited the condo, and during our stay replaced the ceiling fans with new larger fans to help during those few times when the tradewinds don't cool the unit as well. They work great! Good point about the A/C exhaust coming back into the condo. This is common to all the units, and is due to mauka winds blowing out to sea. This is one reason we advise our clients to only use the A/C for cooling the bedroom, and to close the door when doing so. This system works great every time! Mahalo for your business; we hope to see you again soon! Dave & Rita

Great location. I would definitely stay in Wailu/Kapaa area again!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nice and clean. There could be better air circulation. Maybe provide another fan. Otherwise really liked the property!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the nice review, Aprille! Kapaa really IS a great central location to everything this wonderful island has to offer, & we're happy you enjoyed your stay. We've heard reports that it is unusually warm on the island right now, which might explain the air circulation concerns you mentioned. This can sometimes be the case if the tradewinds aren't favorable, & (fortunately) this isn't too often! We hear your concerns, however, & it just happens we will be replacing ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room when we come over next month. New fans should be more efficient & will provide much better circulation during those times when the tradewinds aren't cooperating! You didn't mention the bedroom A/C, but assume you had no troubles with it. This can really make sleeping comfortable if the evening is too warm. We appreciate your business, & hope to see you again soon! Mahalo, Dave & Rita.
